Shake Your Tail!

For Inspiration Challenge 184 ~ Lovely Package....
and Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #91 ~ Half Circles....
and for Limited Supplies Challenge 224....

Today's SCS Inspiration Challenge had such a fun site to browse! It's all about packaging, and as most of us are such visual people, I think many of you would find it fun. It's called Lovely Package. I found these whale salt and pepper shakers for my inspiration!

I hosted the LSC yesterday and would love to have you play along! I challenged everyone to use the colors of water and sand, plus ribbon/hemp/fibers, brads, and piercing. My piercing is done with a Scor-Bug (the negative side). Have you seen those little tools? Take a peek HERE.

Sharon's challenge is to use half circles in our designs. I embossed first with the Cuttlebug and then cut mine with a large Circle Nestabilites and positioned it so it could cut only half.

All my stamps are by Hambo Stamps. Be sure to check out the new Hambo catalog HERE! You are sure to find something to tickle your funny bone!

Have a GREAT day!

Stamps: Whale - 0415; Get Whale Soon - 0801 (Hambo Stamps)
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Que Sera Sera DP by K & Co.
Ink: Palette Noir Black, Copics
Accessories: white gel pen, sanding block, Cuttlebug EFs, Paper Frills (Doodlebug), brads (The Paper Studio), Nestabilities, Scor-Bug, Pacific Pont striped grosgrain ribbon

Well, I recognised your inspiration source instantly as I had my eye on that one. Have a cold, though, and only got as far as playing catch-up from yesterday's LSC. I meant to leave a comment on your slideshow - what amazing scenery! I know Ireland is lovely in its own way, but oh my, those mountains. Now, they are sort that would make you think "I will lift my eyes unto the hills..."
